A special event showcasing the winners of the In The Dark Audio Documentary Award 2015, presented at the Sheffield Doc/Fest last month.

The overall winner in Sheffield was Kvinden på Isen (The Woman On The Ice) by Rikke Houd, which tells the story of Karen Roos, a young Danish woman, who disappeared on the ice outside the little Eastern Greenlandic settlement Angmassalik in 1933. More than 80 years later Rikke follows in her footsteps. This is a rare opportunity to hear work in translation from the cult Danish Podcast ‘Third Ear‘.

The piece was praised by the judges for the sweep and scale of the sound design, the simplicity of the narrative and the way the vivid landscape was evoked, allowing it to become so implicated in the story. Speaking of the producer/narrator, they referred to “the ineffable thing that a storyteller can bring” – and described Rikke’s approach as one of a humble and gentle maker who, without ever getting in the way, brought this story together with empathy and a singular vision.

This audio documentary is in Danish and will be presented with English subtitles.
